Up until the UK terrorist event it was still legal to carry booze in the airplane cabin. Only 151 proof or higher was not allowed, if I recall correctly.

OK this is off topic in a way, please indulge.

As an example. In 1996 on my cruise to Jamaica I met some wonderful members of an African American small Church group on board. Well it was so good to see them when we were all at boarding gate and found out we were on the same flight back home. Well not so good about our flight, it was delayed for "mechanical". And all was nervous about boarding the plane after.

After a nervous flight, when was announced we were making descent to Atlanta. My new friend who was seated beside me without thought belted out "Oh Happy Day". Well that was all it took for the entire group from the Church to start softly singing. Well it took less than a minute for all of Cruisers, Black and White to join in and we were All singing and loudly.

If that happened today it would be considered a Security Threat for un-ruly behavior, and would be escorted by F-16's.

Another long, but true story.

Dave, That was what I had always heard before also. I have not been on a plane since 2001. I did use to get my friends some cheap rum, but always checked it. South Carolina was the last mini-bottle State untill this year. I would throw a few in my back-pack and the only question was where did I get them? I think they thought I might have stole them from the Airline

Again, I bet they do at least change their packing advice for debarkation and air travel.

I was on the Century in the Baltic during the UK threat. Aug2-14th. They briefed us about the new airline rules and the ship even offered to buy back any liquor that was bought onboard. (provided it was unopen ofcouse). That was because we were in the middle of the cruise when it happened. As Dave says I am sure now the ship just leaves it up to you whether to carry it or pack it. By now, two weeks after the threat, anyone flying to a cruise will know what the rules are for returning.
